Question about Watches

Open Question

I have a Howard Miller Model 630-122 mantel clock. It was running fine until I reset the time when we came off daylight savings. It hasn't run since. I changed the batteries and it didn't help. Any ideas what could have happened?

Hi,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Offhand, I would say yes to the battery replacement. Though watches are not within my immediate field. This would be based on your post "2-5 minutes behind". As to the "lost signal" after a reset, may I request that you post back the specific model number pls.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

You can get instructions from the Citizen web site.

Go to "citizen.com" and on the upper right there is a menu. Click on "technical support" and then on "setting instructions"

Fill in the information required from the back of your watch and then click on "get setting instructions"

SOURCE: I need a Howard Miller battery mantle clock

Try www.klockit.com. You can replace the entire movement for about $5 including new hands. You can select from an assortment of hands that will probably match the style of what you have and use those if the old hands don't fit the new movement. I've bought several movements from them over the years. For a few more dollars you can upgrade to an "atomic clock" movement which synchronizes with the US time signal and even sets DST automatically.

SOURCE: We recently purchased a Howard Miller Grandfather

Just taking a stab that someone replaced the suspension spring with one that is too long, and beyond the pendulum adjustment.

I purchased a Howard Miller grandfather clock and the clock is keeping time but pendulum is barely moving. What's the problem?


Hi Pam,
I have a Howard Miller Grandfather clock and the pendulum swings very slowly and from far left to far right travels only about three inches at best. It doesn't need to move any more than that to make the "Verge" move the "Escape Wheel" to rotate the gears to keep the hands moving at the correct tick.

If the clock has a real clockspring mechanism ( with dozens of visible gears), then the problem is likely it needs to be cleaned.and adjusted.

I have a Westclox, Calander Model 70026. I have set the clock several times to the correct time,(with the time zone at the proper setting) but, after a day or so, the hour reading, reverts back...


It's most likely because of Daylight Saving Time. Your clock receives a signal through the air once a day from the actual atomic clock, much like a cell phone receives the time from your cell phone service provider, and it automatically resets itself to the exact time each time it receives this signal. Remember that the middle of the year (the second Sunday in March until the first Sunday in November in the US) is Daylight Saving Time for much of the United States. The clock has an option that allows you to set whether you are observing Daylight Saving Time or not. If this is set to "off", the time will be one hour behind until Daylight Saving Time ends (November 7th). Make sure this is set properly, and your problem will be solved.

Go to their web site "www.howardmiller.com/" and at the bottom of the page there is a menu.

At the bottom of the second column, click on "product manuals" and choose the one that suits your clock.

I have a wacky wake up timex alarm clock and can't set it to correspond with daylight savings.


You press and hold down the time set button...once the time starts to flash you use the "fwd" or "rev" buttons to change the time to what you want it set to. The alarm is set the same way...just press and hold the alarm set button until the time flashes. :)

What ports wind what?


On mine, the center one (@the 6 position) is the one that keeps the pendulum swinging. It is the one that lengthens the most during the week and if I forget to wind it, that pendulum is all the way down when the clock stops.

I purchased an old Hamilton mantel clock that did not run. I have cleaned and oiled it and now it works well except it losses five minutes per day. This has a German movement, spring escapement type,...


This clock has a floating balance escapement.

Hold the balance snuggly with 2 figures. Take a small screw driver and push one of the 4 legs above and attached to the disk to the "+" direction. Move it about 1/4 turn. Set the correct time and check again the next day. If the clock is still slow, move it again and set the hands. Do this until the clock is accurate.

Disclaimer: If this movement was made in the 1970 or early 1980's (The date is a 2 digit # above the movement model number). Those years the clock manufac. (Hermle) did not do well in quality materials. The may need an overhaul or movement replacement. I can provide more information if needed.
